Sennheiser was established in 1945 by Fritz Sennheiser and seven fellow engineers of Hannover University, just a few weeks after the end of World War II (WWII). Starting in a laboratory named Wennebostel — commonly abbreviated to Lab W — the company started with the production of valve-based volt meters, soon followed by the first high-end microphones like the DM-1 and the DM-2. In 1982, the company produced its first wireless microphone. Today, the privately limited company trades as Sennheiser electronic and is still led by Sennheiser family members [2].

Over the years, Sennheiser produced a wide range of (bare) microphone elements, that were used in products from other manufactuers (OEM). During the Cold War, such microphones were used in covert listening devices (bugs) and covert recording equipment, by both sides of the Iron Curtain.
